    Administration & Policies: As far as other students state the guidance counselors are not skilled at their profession. Other than the counselor students are enforced to follow rules. If students do not the principal will take measures to ensure students' behaviors are all well.

    Health & Safety: Few incidents occurred when the school was in possible danger, but the security handled it very well. Personal safety is ensured in the facility, but bullying can get out of hand at times. As for our health programs it is for average injuries. Such as cuts or sickness.

    Food: Staff is the top rated in the lunch, the lunch ladies are always polite. Other than the staff, the food is average. There is a variety, but not all of it satisfies taste.

    Sports & Fitness: Track, Tennis, Softball, and baseball are all great on how they support and play on the field/track. However, our football team does great practices, but games show otherwise.

    Teachers: Organization, good pacing, interesting teaching techniques, and determination is a teacher every student would enjoy to have. On the other hand, there are only a few teachers in the facility who seem to have all the characteristics. A majority of the teachers hand out worksheets to do the whole entire class session, but spend so little teaching. Their grading, interest in students, and communication skills are top notch. While, their teaching skills and determination are absent.
